Hey, guys. How're you doing?
So I recently put together a new gaming rig (first timer). I have everything working right, but there's one issue. The front speaker jack only plays audio out of the right side when fully plugged in and the left when partly plugged in.
I've double checked the wires and plugs through out the MoBo and case.
My motherboard is a B450M Mortar Max Socket AM4 AMD B450 DDR4 Micro ATX Motherboard
And my case is a Fractal Design Meshify S2 Black ATX Modular High-Airflow
You beautiful people have any ideas?

My thought is a mismatch between plug and port; TS, TRS, TRRS.....

Look at the plug and port/socket being used for the speakers.

May be further confused if using any Apple or other proprietary audio connections.

Lastly, look for signs of damage on the plug or in the socket. May be debris inside the socket- especially with a new build.

Just remember to power down and unplug. Do not use any metal items to remove debris from a socket.
